Easy – mostly graded county roads, gravels and a couple rocky sections on the north loop.
The main routes have adequate signage but there is a fair amount of braiding of the trail through the juniper trees. Keep to the most established routes following GPS.

The Chief Tintic trail loops into the hills surrounding Eureka, Utah to explore the rich mining history in the area. The trails are gravel and graded county roads with a couple rocky sections on the North Loop. You can stage out of the town of Eureka which will have limited amenities at the convenience store.

There is a north and south loop for the trail with plenty to explore. Each loop took us about 2.5 hours at an average speed of 11 mph and covered 70 miles of riding. The area is littered with history of the once bustling mining town.

The Cheif Tintic Trail has a North and a South Loop. We started the day unloading at the Euereka City Park and driving across the highway to the South Loop trailhead behind the gas station just east of town.
This is the remnants of the Jesse Knight School. This area is the ghosttown of Knightsville “the only mining camp in the US without a saloon.”Jesse Knight is an interesting figure in the area. We highly suggest you search Jesse Knight Eureka.
What is left of the Humbug Mine. Another interesting piece of the areas history.
Continue on west. This was the site of the Sunbeam Mine.
Looking out over the Dragon Mine.
On the way back to Eureka you will come across the Silver City Cemetery. silver city
Stay left here, you will pass a small concrete structure down the trail a ways. Follow the trail that runs parallel to town back to the park. From here you head back to the highway to find the north loop.
This is the trailhead for the north loop. You can access it at the east end of Eureka right off Highway 6. As you can see there is space for parking if you want to stage here.
Stay left here. The other spur dead ends at a Juniper. You will notice there is a fair amount of braiding of the trail through the trees. Do your best to stay on the most established path. There is a gnarly spot coming down the hill with some larger rocks on the other side that will keep the ride interesting. Stay heading north on the trail.
